My relationship with snow is definitely that of a love/hate nature. If I have to drive in it, especially if it hits unexpectedly while I'm at work and it takes me three hours to get home, then hate is most definitely the word to describe my feelings. But I do still love a good snowy morning, on a day off, where I can sit with my pups and a big cup of tea and just watch the big flakes fall. It always feels a little magical. I've definitely been trying to learn to separate my feeling of snow. Enjoy its beauty, even though it means I'm freezing and it will possibly mean an extra hard commute. It's definitely a complicated relationship we have, but since it doesn't look like I'll be moving to Hawaii anytime soon, I better enjoy it. 

Mix it up

I'm usually not a huge pattern mixer. I'd say I'm a pretty simple dresser usually. Not that I'm against it, because I think if it's done right then mixing patterns and colors can be really fun, but it also can be easy to drift into the "I threw everything in my closet on my body" look too, which is not so good, so I usually stay away. Stripes and gingham though? I'm pretty sure they were made for each other. A good black and white stripe sweater is officially on my "never be without" list. It's a great pattern to have on hand that can go with fun colors without overpowering everything. Especially when fall is calling for lots of layers!

We're getting so close to the big move! I spent most of yesterday sorting through my closet which quickly expanded to fill the big walk-in closet at this house after we moved in. Anything thats semi-wintery is going into storage (YES!) and I recently gave a lot of clothes to some friends, but went back through and decided it's time to get rid of a little more. There's several things that are still in perfect condition that I've worn here on the blog a few times, and I have had a few people ask me about doing a "shop my closet" sort of thing so I'm considering – what do you think? Anyone else done one or bought anything from other bloggers "closets" before? I'd love to hear your opinions/experiences!

I never noticed how most of my closet is fall colors until I reached in l started reaching in for "springy" things. I guess I'm just more drawn to those rich colors, plus I always find pastels hard to mix with the rest of my wardrobe. So lately I've been trying to make some of my fall-like colors feel a little more appropriate for the spring, it's kind of fun! I thrifted this shirt last week and it's already proving to be a great peice for mixing with almost anything, so I'll deffinitely be getting my whole 85cents worth out of it:)

Nautical Stripes and Straw Hats

Vintage Dress (thrifted&altered) // Vintage Necklace, Shoes & Belt (thrifted) // H&M Hat

I've been wearing this hat so much lately that I think it's offically made it onto my summer must-have's list. I actually almost didn't buy it because I am notorious for buying hats and then never wearing them. They usually just sit in my closet and look pretty. But when I came across this fella in the men's section of H&M this spring I couldn't help myself. And thankfully H&M's accessories are pretty cheap so I didn't feel like it would be the end of the world if I only wore it a couple of times.

But, as you can see, it's getting plenty of wear.

We spent all day yesterday at the Devon Horse Show and it was way too much fun!
If you live or are around the Philly area this week you should absolutely try to go out, but maybe for those who can't, I'll try to post a few pictures tomorrow ;)
